CrossFit Kids Programs
CrossFit Jack Pine caters to both adults and kids who are looking to improve their overall fitness levels. Our gym is well-equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including specialized equipment for strength training, cardio workouts, and other functional exercises. One of the unique features of CrossFit Jack Pine is its commitment to offering strength training programs for kids. We believe that strength training can help kids build their physical and mental resilience, improve their athletic performance, and prevent injuries.
Our CrossFit Kids program is focused on three simple concepts; have fun every day, outstanding quality of movement, and integrity in everything we do. It is our belief that these lessons transcend fitness and create opportunities for children to grow confident while learning to move their bodies safely and effectively. There is a vast body of research demonstrating children that are physically active perform significantly better in cognitive functions.
The program is focused on kids from age 10 through 18, with specialized adjustment of curriculum for each child, each day to ensure they are safe while being challenged to move with exceptional form in everything they do. No prior sport experience is necessary to begin, and even 4 sport athletes will be challenged and improve their game day performance within our program.
While we use similar movements to adult CrossFit (gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, and cardiovascular exercises); the CrossFit Kids classes are executed with a very different focus. We prioritize mechanics and consistency over intensity as the child learns new movements. Once they have demonstrated proficiency, we begin to add intensity and allow them to move heavier, faster, or for longer periods, all under continual guidance from our coaches.
Within our environment we hold the safety of children the absolute priority, and to support that, we require all of our CrossFit Kids coaches to be federally background checked on an annual basis and are Certified CrossFit Kids Trainers.
CrossFit Jack Pine takes a holistic approach to fitness and wellness, and its kids’ strength training program is no exception. We promote healthy habits, such as proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and stress management, to help kids achieve optimal results. We also foster a supportive and inclusive community where kids can make friends, learn teamwork, and build their confidence. Whether your child is a beginner or an experienced athlete, CrossFit Jack Pine is a great place to start their fitness journey and set them up for a lifetime of health and wellness.
